Pete & Perq win Amsterdam Award!

Award ceremony August 28th @ Muziekgebouw

Today ?Het Parool? has announced that we are this year?s winner of the ?Amsterdamprijs?! The other two winners are architect Marlies Rohmer and video artist Julika Rudelius. The award, which is the most important art award of the city, goes out every year to those artists who contributed in a special way to the arts and to putting Amsterdam on the map. It?s the first time that a hip hop group receives the award which, besides the honour, consists of a very nice sum of money.
The award ceremony will take place on August 28th in the Muziekgebouw aan ?t IJ where we will receive the award from mayor Job Cohen. We?re very honoured!

5th of May liberationday was off the chain!

Because of technical probs with the helicopter we couldn't make it to Groningen though...

Monday, the 5th of May, was absolutely the bomb! We did shows in Roermond, Den Bosch, Haarlem and Amsterdam and at all four of them were great with great crowds. Check the pictures in the ?Get To Know? ? section.
Unfortunately, after our second show in Den Bosch, when we were gonna depart for Groningen, there was a technical problem with the helicopter. Because of this we couldn?t make it to Groningen anymore. In stead we directly went for Haarlem. Next year we?ll try to do a rematch in Groningen for anyone who was waiting for us there.
